Was Ferris Bueller's Ferrari A Fake?

Surprise! What you're looking at is actually plastic.

Matthew Broderick shared the secret with Andy Cohen.

"Did you keep any special mementos from the set of 'Ferris Bueller'?" Cohen asked.

"No, I don't think I have a thing ... they didn't even let me touch the Ferrari. We had a fake Ferrari that we drove around in. It was plastic," Broderick said.

The real deal costs A LOT of money.

It's a 1961 Ferrari 250 GT California.

An identical model entered an auction this year.

Its guide price started at $12 million.

That's nearly 20 percent of the movie's earnings.

Can you afford that?

Don't worry, neither could they.
